How to: personalize a notebook


Personalized-notebook

This year, I find myself enjoying simple projects that take less than 20 minutes. Without ruining my "perfectly" manicured nails...*winks* Like this personalized notebook.


I started with a Muji notebook made with recycled paper.


Then I measured and cut some Hambly overlay [yeah...time to stop hoarding them!].


Which I run through my Xyron 9" Creative Station for an even layer of adhesive.


Score at the spine and adhere to notebook.


Add some gaffer tape/washi tape at the spine for a pop of colour. Then finish with metal bookplate embellishment. Love how quick and easy this is. It makes a great last minute gift too! :)
